We had DirecTV, but we had cable Internet. The cable company only gives you a discount on their Internet service if you also subscribe to their TV service. Now that DirecTV is owned by AT&T, we were looking into getting high-speed DirecTV Internet service. You can bundle the two together. It does not come in over the satellite. It is just getting fast Internet service from AT&T because you are a DirecTV customer. There are options to saving on Internet if you are a satellite TV customer.
I like how the company puts its divisions together to meet the needs of customer.
